"LKQ Corporation is one of the most recognized and respected names in the automotive industry," said AkzoNobel A&AC Americas General Manager AB Ghosh. “We’re proud to have them as a part of our growing North American network of distribution partners.

"We’re constantly challenging ourselves to improve our global leadership position. Our strength exists in our core competencies, which are providing exceptional products, technology and service to the collision repair industry. By moving toward independent distribution in North America, we can now bring even greater focus to those areas which make us unique and set us apart from our competition."
